Spanish giants, Real Madrid have been accused of trying to erase its former player and club legend Cristiano Ronaldo from its history.
An article on the club’s website celebrating four players — Sergio Ramos, Raphaël Varane, Luka Modrić and Marcelo — securing their spots in UEFA’s Team of the Year for 2018, has seen Ronaldo omitted.
Report also have it that Madrid stopped following Ronaldo on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram after he left for Juventus. This is quite different from the player’s old club Manchester United which still follows their former star.
Being the club’s all-time record scorer, Ronaldo has no place in the club’s main photo choices for the ‘Football History’ and ‘Football Legends’ sections.
“If they want to feature another player’s greatest moments and there are highlights of him scoring from Ronaldo’s assists or assisting a Ronaldo goal, then they will go looking for other highlights clip involving other players,” the Daily Mail’s Pete Jenson wrote.
